Description

The OAuth implementation in librest before 0.7.93 incorrectly truncates the pointer returned by the rest_proxy_call_get_url function, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via running the EnsureCredentials method from the org.gnome.OnlineAccounts.Account interface on an object representing a Flickr account.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
